    I have four bantam Cochins: one black roo and three hens, blue, red, and black. So I was wondering: What would happen if you crossed a black Cochin with a red? What color would you get? And what about a black and a blue?

    Thanks!

    the black over a red, you'll most likely get 100% black... with some red feathers here and there...

    Anybody else have an opinion? Anybody know the actual genetics for this?

    Thanks! Very... complicated, though. I know little to nothing 'bout genetics, so this will be quite an experience. Guess I better know about genetics if I want to go into selective breeding! [​IMG]
